The Canadian flag is slightly larger than the Swedish flag at the top.

 

Nicely done. ;)

I'm worried about this game. I'm guessing Sweden will play the European style game and with King Hank in net? Yikes.

Sweden is saying they're not happy about the refs being Canadian in this game. They're pre-building excuses. Bring it on, ya visor wearing, pansies.

That is pretty fucking stupid. How hard would it be to choose neutral refs?

Refs are inherently neutral. The issue is getting the best refs for the job. Canada is going to be the country that supplies them.

You're not telling me there isn't a set of referees who aren't Swedish or Canadian that aren't up to the job. IOC are just making controversy for themselves.

Haha no. Remember the american refs in the women's final from 2002? They were very NOT neutral.

 

And even if they ARE neutral and do their best, you're already creating controversy which will make their jobs harder. One Canadian ref is one thing but THREE? That's just stupid.

 

All they had to do to was pick some Finnish and American refs, or something.

Well, apparently part of the NHL agreement with the IOC was that they would have to use NHL refs in the finals.

 

And looking at the NHL ref roster, there are many more Murrican refs than I thought. Yeah, poor decision, but I have a feeling it was out of the IOC's hands.

Honestly I don't expect them to blow any calls from bias that they wouldn't have already blown from incompetence.

But it's such a stupid situation to put those refs in. Any, and I mean ANY, call that goes against the Swedes will bring accusations against them. That's just not fair for the refs.

Regardless of what country they are from the IOC picked the best refs available.

 

Right decision.

None of this really means anything because apparently, according to a Viking historian with the British Museum, February 22, 2014 is the date slated for the Viking 'apocalypse' Ragnarök wherein all the Norse Gods with be summoned to Earth to fight Loki's sons. Then most of the Gods, including Thor, Odin, Heimdallr and Loki will die and those who survive will watch the Earth reborn and repopulated...

 

Honestly, I find it quite hilarious how these two 'events' line-up :P

Now Marg has me worried. I haven't got through Vikings on History yet, so I don't know where I line up in all of this.

Do we have any players that look like Vikings? We might be ok.

I ADORE these sort of things! It's like I can check off having successfully survived stuff:

 

Rapture #1? Survived.

Rapture #2? Survived.

Ragnarök? Survived.

 

 

Magnus, want to shed some light on this since you're Swedish so you must know all about those disinherited Vikings who share your ancestry? ;)
